What if we combine current weather maps with satellite imagery layers to compare the real look providing by satellite and the modeling data? This basic example shows you the option of satellite and weather maps combination and visualization on the one Leaflet map.All currently available data sets, also including snow, wind, precipitation and clouds can be connected to the map to extend this application and make your desirable satellite-weather combination.As a satellite layer, in this example, we used NASA GIBS imagery, yet we’re looking forward to provide this kind of imagery directly through the VANE platform additional to Landsat...

Europe’s next weather satellite gears up for launch

20 March 2012 Following the safe arrival of the MetOp-B weather satellite in Kazakhstan, the sophisticated craft is now being carefully assembled and tested before launch on 23 May.
